I was telling my daughter about your books, and she loves the idea of buying a set for Ellie, so I’ll definitely see you in Sept.!

Terrific! I will keep you informed on the progress of the 8 year old who I just gifted with all of your books!

It was neat to hear about the inspiration for your latest book. My husband proposed to me at the top of Notre Dame towers, so Paris and Notre Dame have a special place in my heart.

What a great place to be proposed to. I can see how this would always be a special place for you.

Great interview and perfect excerpts from your newest book, Darlene!! Love it!!

Thanks, Kirt. Glad you liked it.

Going to check it out.
